Second Chronicles 17


17:1 And Jehoshaphat his son reigned in his stead, and
 strengthened himself against Israel.
17:2 And he placed forces in all the fortified cities of Judah,
 and set garrisons in the land of Judah, and in the cities of
 Ephraim, which Asa his father had taken.
17:3 And the LORD was with Jehoshaphat, because he walked in the
 first ways of his father David, and sought not to Baalim;
17:4 But sought to the [LORD] God of his father, and walked in
 his commandments, and not after the doings of Israel.
17:5 Therefore the LORD established the kingdom in his hand: and
 all Judah brought to Jehoshaphat presents; and he had riches
 and honor in abundance.
17:6 And his heart was lifted up in the ways of the LORD:
 moreover he took away the high places and groves out of Judah.
17:7 Also in the third year of his reign he sent to his princes,
 [even] to Ben-hail, and to Obadiah, and to Zechariah, and to
 Nethaneel, and to Michaiah, to teach in the cities of Judah.
17:8 And with them [he sent] Levites, [even] Shemaiah, and
 Nethaniah, and Zebadiah, and Asahel, and Shemiramoth, and
 Jehonathan, and Adonijah, and Tobijah, and Tob-adonijah,
 Levites; and with them Elishama and Jehoram, priests.
17:9 And they taught in Judah, and [had] the book of the law of
 the LORD with them, and went about throughout all the cities of
 Judah, and taught the people.
17:10 And the fear of the LORD fell upon all the kingdoms of the
 lands that [were] around Judah, so that they made no war
 against Jehoshaphat.
17:11 Also [some] of the Philistines brought Jehoshaphat
 presents, and tribute silver; and the Arabians brought him
 flocks, seven thousand and seven hundred rams, and seven
 thousand and seven hundred he-goats.
17:12 And Jehoshaphat became exceedingly great; and he built in
 Judah castles, and cities of store.
17:13 And he had much business in the cities of Judah: and the
 men of war, mighty men of valor, [were] in Jerusalem.
17:14 And these [are] the numbers of them according to the house
 of their fathers: of Judah, the captains of thousands; Adnah
 the chief, and with him mighty men of valor three hundred
 thousand.
17:15 And next to him [was] Jehohanan the captain, and with him
 two hundred and eighty thousand.
17:16 And next to him [was] Amasiah the son of Zichri, who
 willingly offered himself to the LORD; and with him two hundred
 thousand mighty men of valor.
17:17 And of Benjamin; Eliada a mighty man of valor, and with
 him armed men with bow and shield two hundred thousand.
17:18 And next to him [was] Jehozabad, and with him a hundred
 and eighty thousand ready prepared for the war.
17:19 These waited on the king, besides [those] whom the king
 put in the fortified cities throughout all Judah.
